Return to: Fiber Collages: individual prayer flags

Dawn Comes After Even the Longest Night by Anya Doll

Dawn Comes After Even the Longest Night

23x23" unframed fiber collage with freestyle machine stitching. In the spring of 2021, I struggled with health issues and depression that had me wondering if I would ever make another prayer flag. Ultimately, through practices, patience and openness to what the Great Collaborator had in store, I found my self able to feel gratitude one day for the depression and challenges, knowing these had something to teach me. A few days later, in a thrift store, I happened upon a yellow lace dress that practically jumped into my hands. The next day, in the studio, this flag was formed around one of the roses in the lace.
